In solar modules, the ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) or polyolefin encapsulation protects the sensitive solar cells from the environment. In consequence the degree of intermolecular cross-linking of EVA or polyolefin is decisive for the long-term stability and performance of a module. Cross-linking is achieved by thermally curing the polymers during the lamination process.
The X Link® system enables fast, automated, non-destructive and accurate evaluation of the level of EVA or polyolefin cross-linking immediately after lamination. It can be integrated into any solar module production line, offering 100% coverage for process and quality control.
